Up-Close sessions

Get up close and personal to some of our favourite invertebrates in our extremely popular Up-Close Meet the Bugs session.

Book your session on the day of your visit by following this link.

  • This session, led by one of The Bug Farm team, consists of a 30-40 minute learning experience about some of our bugs, during which you get to hold and meet a variety of tropical insects.
  • Please book one ticket for each person attending. Children must be accompanied by a paying adult. Add the number of people attending under the ‘One person ticket’ option and then click on the date of your visit. Finally, click on the time that best suits you, before clicking ‘Book now’.
  • Please only book this session if you are also booking Bug Farm entrance tickets for the same day. This session is generally suitable for adults and children 4 years-old and over. Spaces are limited, so we highly recommend booking this session in advance. This is an experience not to be missed!

These sessions are only pre-bookable during Wales school holidays. Outside of these periods, they are offered on entrance instead.

We reserve the right to cancel these sessions up until the start-time of the session and will, in the case of cancellation, offer a full refund for the session.

If you or a member of your party has known severe allergies to invertebrates, we would advise that person to either not book onto an up close session or to get in touch with us to discuss further.
